One last bird before the plane took everyone home

And so this is firmly it. Yesterday's post was supposed to be the last for this season, but with a Long-billed Dowitcher plonking itself on the airfield this morning an update was in order for the sake of completeness.

And, as we left, a passing cargo ship was in the distance heading east. Unfortunately all those stowaways will never be found even if they do make landfall on the rock. Because, the lights have firmly been closed for this birding season and nobody's around anymore.

Same people, same place, next year, different birds.
